Every week, we present a curated list of live music in a wide range of genres all around the Valley. This week we’re taking a look at what’s happening at Downtown Phoenix venues.

April 13
Phoebe Bridgers
The title track of the indie artist’s 2020 album Punisher imagines her meeting her biggest musical influence, the gone-too-soon Elliott Smith. Yet despite the melancholy themes in her songs, she has an affection for all things hokey, which explains her penchant for wearing Halloween-themed onesies onstage. $39.50-$59.50, 7:30 p.m., Arizona Federal Theatre, 400 W. Washington St., Phoenix, 602-514-2919, azfederaltheatre.com

April 14
Robbie’s Karaoke Dance Party
Playboy Manbaby frontman and TikTok sensation Robbie Pfeffer hosts a Downtown dance party where you pick and sing the songs. It might get weird, but he promises it “won’t suck.” 10 p.m., free, Crescent Ballroom, 308 N. 2nd Ave. Phoenix, 602-716-2222, crescentphx.com

April 15
The Noodles
Dead and Company, the current incarnation of the legendary live group The Grateful Dead, will not be coming to Phoenix this summer. But The Noodles are here to scratch your jam band itch. 9 p.m., $12, Last Exit Live, 717 S. Central Ave., Phoenix, 602-271-7000, lastexitlive.com

April 16
Las Calakas

The local cumbia sensations always bring the party wherever they play, so be prepared to move as they debut their first full-length album, titled Hechizo. 8 p.m., $25, Crescent Ballroom, 308 N. 2nd Ave. Phoenix, 602-716-2222, crescentphx.com

April 16
Alan Parsons Live Project
If you were watching Peter Jackson’s documentary Get Back closely, you might have caught Alan Parsons in the same studio where The Beatles put together Let It Be. A few years later, the former sound engineer formed his own band and topped the charts with hits like “Eye In the Sky” and “Don’t Answer Me.” 7:30 p.m. $35-$125. Celebrity Theatre, 440 N. 32nd St., Phoenix, 602-267-0186, celebritytheatre.com
